Never stop believing in hope!

hope-quotes-wallpaperI think in the world today, it can be very easy to give up hope. There does seem to be so much negativity and hatred surfacing daily, but not allowing these thoughts into our lives is possible! As long as we keep only those around us who offer happiness and nothing but optimism, we all could spread those emotions instead of negativity. If enough believe in love❤ and hope, we could out power the hate.

It could be easy for me or anyone else that lives with a chronic illness to want to give up any hope for a cure. Living with any illness that causes daily pain is without a doubt frustrating, hope-quotes-about-life-09especially when it seems to be never-ending. Being required to take numerous medications several times a day to slow any progression down, is not any fun! Making decisions of what the right medications are is like playing a game of Russian Roulette, you never know what the outcome is going to be. All of this takes determination to beat the odds and hopefully win the game of life!

Making decisions on what the right medications will be for yourself is extremely difficult. This takes having a lot of confidence in your choices. It also takes doing a lot of research on the medications to choose from. Since being diagnosed with Multiple hope seeing brightSclerosis 18 years ago, I have been on numerous different types of medications that are meant to slow the progression down. The first several were not right for me and I was able to move onto something different. The great thing is, none of the medications need to be permanent if they do not work well with your body chemistry, you are able to keep moving on with something else. This process was frustrating for me, but I never gave up hope that something would work well for me. Thankfully, I had a very understanding and tolerant doctor during this time which helped me make the best decisions!

I want to share a blog post from a fabulous fellow blogger❤ with y’all. Jenny at https://trippingthroughtreacle.com has lived with Multiple Sclerosis for many years and still keeps up her fight! I always find everything Jenny shares to be beyond amazing and she continues to give me hope for better times. I want to share with you her recent post because it was so brilliant and very informative https://trippingthroughtreacle.com/2018/09/07/multiple-sclerosis-and-its-symptoms/#comment-1981. This post alone will make you want to read even more of 2-19-life-1024x792Jenny’s posts!

As difficult as life gets, we all have the choice to hold onto HOPE! If we continue believing, HOPE will never die! We have a choice to challenge the potential for continuing to better ourselves and even all around us.

  1. The poem below was written in a different context, but I can see it has many applications and meanings. I hope you see it that way, my dear Alyssa.

    HOPE
    © 2016 Barbara Grace Lake

    When all hope dies
    Can ever threads remain
    Of former ties
    To call it back again

    Does hope join dreams
    Mid broken solemn vows
    As uttered means
    Enthralling men to bow

    But threads there be
    So hope is still aware
    Within a sea
    Of monstrous self despair

    We are alive
    Our souls unfettered bare
    And hope survives
    If mantle we would wear

  2. This may seem random, but when you talk about all the hatred in the world today, I always remember this song by Anne Murray, A little good news today. It may be the first song I ever learned all the words to, other than the ABC’s ( yes it is that old) If you have a chance give it a listen and let me know what you think?

Another fantastic post and you’re so right, with MS and other conditions where medications and treatments are involved because all too often it’s a case of trial and error and it can become to frustrating and disheartening. Jenny is a great blogger, too! Never give up hope – a wonderful reminder 🌷

    • Thank you Caz! Dealing with any chronic illness the medications are hit or miss. It is so frustrating. I seriously went through about 5 or 6 before finding Gilenya. Jenny is absolutely amazing and has the strength of a true fighter! I am glad you liked this post!! I hope you are doing well and having a good week! LOTS of love sweetie!xxx

  4. Love the second quote with the picture of the fresh tree with the green leaves. Trees are a symbol of hope and new life. I wish everyone could be more hopeful and positive like you. I often feel like giving up HOPE but that is because one person alone can’t do everything and fight for more research for a cure and there is so much of negativity is is difficult to find Hope.
